to look at, do not repeat roe. roe was happened at a time the rapid social change, ronald reagan signed the most liberal abortion law in the country. this put a stop at all of this. this decreed liberal success before it was in the culture. it creates all the social tension. let the people work it out in the states. in referenda. but not to do it by decree on high. i hope that the court learned that lesson and won't do the same with gay issues as well. >> bret: fox polled right before the election, a.b., had the split pro-choice. you know, depending on the poll, it is a fairly close split. change here and there. >> those people would argue that using the terms is not really accurate polling. everyone is pro-life, even if they support the right to an abortion. other polling, majority in the high 60s in support for roe and legal abortion. that said, pro-life movement waged on restriction and access has been suckbe sesful. they have succeeded in acting restriction -- enacting restrictions across the country in every state that has reduced access to abortion that has taken the pro-choice mo
of office for the first time. >> i, ronald reagan, do solemnly swear -- >> i, ronald reagan, do solemnly swear -- >> and it with news 1981 when ronald reagan was taking the oath on the steps of the u.s. capital word came that 52 americans who had been held hostage for 440 days in iran were on the way home. and moments later, the newly sworn in president reagan revealed the news to congress in the statuary hall. >> and now the conclude the test with thanks to almighty god, i have been given a tag line, to get-off line that everybody wants for the end of a toast or speech or anything else. some 30 minutes ago, the planes bearing our prisoners left iranian air space and are now fr free. so -- [ applause ] >> so, we can all drink to this one, to all of us together, doing what we all know we can do to make this country what it should be, what it can be, what it always has been. >> seven days later the former hostages were back on american soil. they landed at an drews air force base and greeted by family and friends and the new vice president, george h.w. bush. >> promises made and promises b
president in terms of raising it, the winner is ronald reagan at 17 times. that might shock people who like to see him as the paragon of responsible spending. >> we'll start with the deficit, shrinking more rapidly than at any time since the end of the korean war. in the end of december, we had a deficit for the month of $260 million, not $260 billion, $260 million. which in washington is almost the budget. that's the smallest monthly deficit in five years. some of that is artificial. people pulling transactions forward because they were afraid of higher tax rates in 2013. but for the first three months of 2013, we have a rapidly shrinking fiscal 2013, we have a rapidly shrinking deficit. so we are in a way chasing a vanishing problem. >> which is interesting, and that would allow for some things that are dirty and things that are not so dirty, would completely perhaps get rid of this problem after a while. do you think we're headed for a full stalemate? >> it's such a shame. i think david is right because we have low debt service right now. we're paying less interest on our debt than we ha
commentator suggesting the president's mission now is to reverse everything that ronald reagan put in place 30 years ago. our panel debates that in a moment. >> this was really obama unbound and i think what is most interesting is that obama basically is declaring the end of reaganism in this speech. jenna shared her recipe with sharon, who emailed it to emily, who sent it to cindy, who wondered why her soup wasn't quite the same. the recipe's not the recipe... ohhh. [ female announcer ] ...without swanson. the broth cooks trust most when making soup. mmmm! [ female announcer ] the secret is swanson. bill: some breaking news from the high court. supreme court will not consider an appeal over how much authority the epa should have in setting air quality standards. that appeal filed by a company that operates one of the three main u.s. copper plants. it was appealing a decision by the d.c. circuit court in july that had uphold the environmental protection agency, the epa's new air quality standard for sulfur dioxide. you got that? martha: got it. bill: all clear? martha: leading conservative cha
that, juan? >> no, it's his inauguration and i think that i remember back to covering ronald reagan, he introduced the idea of bringing people onto the balcony giving the state of the union to illustrate the point he was trying to make, the program, the legislative agenda he set for himself and i think this is a lot like this and reminded of the criticism that attracted the president attracted yesterday when he had those young people, those children at the ceremony for his signing that gun-- his executive orders on gun control, but the idea, i think, is as i understand it from the white house, to exhibit core values that attach to this administration, so this is the president saying this is who i am, i stand for someone who didn't have health care before. i stand for a gay persowants to. i stand for veterans who served and now deserve a job in the country. that's upbeat stuff to my mind. >> megyn: ben? >> juan, there's also people sitting there going you've got a guy who got an overinflated salary and we lost money bailing money out of an auto company and a break because he choose to pu
's not the case anymore, is it? >> well, actually ronald reagan spoke very well about this exact point. he said those who want to do away with the electoral system will disenfranchise our midwestern or rural states. he said that because we are a republic where states' rights and their representation is important and he didn't want the tyranny of the majority. what he wanted to make sure that those states that 15 rural ones could at least get their electoral vote heard because they had, like even though they're rural, at least a decent amount of electoral votes. it's very important -- >> gregg: they can still be heard, if you just do it on a proportionality, like maine and nebraska. right? >> yes, but maine and nebraska, as you know, only have two and three congressional districts. and only one has any not won everything there. when you begin to get into states like texas or pen, then you're beginning as an individual state to jerry mannedder what the outcome can be. then four years from now as democrats control that, then they change it back to the old way and you've lost so much trust in polit
, president george w. bush, bill clinton, or ronald reagan? >> bill clinton. >> hmm. poor hoda. >> wait. she got $100? >> so tell us, he was the first? >> it was his second inauguration in 1997, and before you start thinking the white house was super internet savvy, bare in mind bill clinton sent a grand total of two emails during his eight years. >> are you kidding? >> not kidding. >> world has changed. back across to kath. >> chico and california. who elizabeth be one of the performers singing at president barack obama's second inauguration? beyouns yea, kelly clarkson, carly rae jepsen or james taylor. who went be there? >> carly rae jepsen. >> poor hodie. >> this is a bad day. >> you know what, hoda. i figured it out, though. they can take the money that they win and buy your book at barnes & noble. >> they can buy four books. okay. carly rae jepsen, the one. >> i guess he didn't call her maybe. >> girl, i thought you were going to go there. >> although others, james taylor will perform. >> james taylor is old hand at this. he performed at the dnc. beyonce has been a big obama performer.
's mother, live with them in the white house. >> 800,000 is pretty good, more and then came out for ronald reagan, more than george w. bush. >> and it is the second inauguration, still larger than any other inauguration, except for his first. >> even with some of the disappointments, and the unfilled expectations, there is still a resonance, particularly with african-americans, the importance and significance of having barack obama as president. people are still coming out and supporting. we saw that last year in the election. 95% of african-americans voted for him. there is still a lot there attached to the meaning of having a first african-american becoming president of the united states. >> when you say you wish it would have been eight knowledge, the history of the building of this city, the nation's capital, washington, d.c., explain. >> psychologists tell us that acknowledging pain and suffering is a way to get past the trauma. until the country related knowledge as that this is part of the history -- we have had good parts of history but we have also had bad, and we should not prete
